and so, i went on -- >> montana. >> and so i went searching for replacement coverage for the employees that had been laid off, only to find out that cobra doesn't apply to me because i have less than 20 employees. and that conservatively affects 80% of all workers in montana. so, they were pretty much out on their own. and i was wondering if what we can do to eliminate discrimination against small employers, as an example, we're a lumberyard, we're out there lifting boards and packing stuff all day long. every one of my remaining seven employees are fit. so, why are we and i as an employer able to provide a lesser level of benefits to my employees and yet an employer with 30 employees who sit in cubicles on their butts instead of working them off gets a better rate? >> that was a pretty good question. so, for all of you who are all sitting on your -- what did you call them? no. as i said, small businesses is probably as vulnerable as anybody. and one of the things that max has been working very hard on -- and this just doesn't get advertised, but i want to make sure e

to montana, the obama family is on their way to montana right now, where this afternoon the president will be holding a town hall meeting, another town hall meeting to try to sell his plan, what he calls selling the myths of what has been said by the opposition about the plan. it's the big story at the white house. let's bring in nbc news white house correspondent, savannah guthrie. savannah, have they figured out another way to get their message across? it hasn't worked so far, to their satisfaction, or anyone else's. >> reporter: well, look, they know they have a problem. the polls show it, clearly. numerous polls show that support for health care reform is dropping. so what they're trying to do is one thing they have always done, which is put the president out there. they've refined the message. today's town hall will focus on yet another insurance reform, focusing on what around here they call rescissions, which is the practice of insurance companies when they drop people when they become sick. so that will be the focus of the town hall. we've seen kind of some different stuff on
for health care reform slipping, president obama hit the road again. this time in belgrade, montana. the crowd was much friendlier than those rowdy town halls we've seen from members of congress, but the president finally did get a couple of questions that were not complete softballs. chuck todd joins us in a moment from montana. >>> plus, you know those end of life counseling provisions in the health care bills which republicans like sarah palin have distorted into death panels? well, it turns out that republicans like sarah palin were actually for end of life counseling before they were against it. that's just one of the inconsistencies we'll discuss with an opponent of reform, republican congressman john culberson of texas joining us in a moment. >>> also, how far has he fallen? 24r is a report that john edwards is about to finally admit that he is, indeed, the father of his mistress' child. so where would we be if edwards had not been so decisively rejected by wise democratic primary voters last year? >>> plus, bill clinton has some tough words for the netroots crowd on don't as
a town hall in montana, taking the first family to nearby yellowstone park. mr. obama came because when it comes to passing reform the road truly runs through montana. raw politics from ed henry. >> reporter: montana is a nice place to visit this time of year, but the president had more on his mind than fly-fishing. he came for urgent business, buttering up the state senior center max bachus who could hold the fate of health reform in his hands. >> first of all the man who is working tirelessly to make sure the american people get a fair deal when it comes to health care in america, please give max bachus a round of applause. >> reporter: in private, top presidential advisers acknowledged the fight reached a critical stage because the opposition reached some steam, capitalizing on anger at congressional town hall meetings. >> where does this state that government has the powers to take over health care. >> reporter: by comparison the president's town hall was tame. he did get one pointed question that reflected the strong opposition he's facing. >> we keep getting the bull. that is all
to montana later today holding the second of three town halls this week to sell and defend his health care reform plan. the president getting support from former president bill clinton, who came to his defense on thursday saying republicans are promoting fear in the health care fight. >>> senior white house correspondent jake tapper has more for us this morning. good morning, jake. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, that's right. this montana town hall meeting could prove to be a tougher crowd than the friendly audience that the president faced in new hampshire. for one, montana is a red state that senator john mccain won last fall and, two, the ticks were first come first serve so the president may be feeling the heat just as members of congress have been. >> the most danger to the most people is sticking with the status quo. it is bankrupting america, making families insecure and undermining the future of the country. >> reporter: no stranger to a health care debate former president bill clinton stepped into battle last night blaming republicans for the frenzied town hall sweeping t
of north and south dakota and parts of montana. we're going to continue to talk more about the weather and keep you posted with the very latest. robin? >> thank you so much. >>> if you suffered through a pay cut during poofrt this recession, there's a chance you may get some of your paycheck back. that's great news in a bad economy. plus -- whoa. they got the world on a string. we're going to take you to the world yo-yo contest. <ó<ó<ó>> time for our salute to the troops. today's salute is from a proud dad to his son. wade wants to tell his son matt keep his eyes and ears open and e change his sock often. >> good morning. i wanted to give a sharp air force salute to senior matthew fullwood. we love and miss him a whole lot and can't wait for him to return in december. >> good advice from dad. if you have somebody in the service and you want to salute them, go to cnn.com/robin so we can. >>> in about four hours a private funeral for eunice kennedy shriver is going to begin. now, a public wake was held yesterday. the sister of president john f. kenne kennedy died yesterday. sh
-election at all. his polls are way down out in montana and this is a somewhat embattled figure within washington. this is someone that a lot of democrats just don't trust. a lot of republicans don't trust and -- >> why don't they trust him? why don't they trust him? is it because he doesn't -- i mean, does he go back on his word or is he just a guy who doesn't play sides? >> i think he's a guy -- i think probably more the latter. i think, you know, he was for the bush tax cuts in 2001. he had to deal with chuck grassley last year and then he sort of turned around and supported the democrats on a key medicare bill last summer. he does sort of play both sides of the fence which i guess is smart if you want to get re-elected every six years in montana but, again, he seemed shell-shocked by the whole situation now. i saw him in a town hall meeting. he was actually surrounded by youtubes as he called him, which i think he meant cameras. no, it's true. there are even people with youtubes in the audience and i was like, whoa. he said i think i meant cameras but, anyway, i put it in my story. it went vi

[ laughter ] >> you would do really well there. >> plus, bill clinton takes on a heckler and jumps into the health care reform fray. >> i'm telling you, i don't care how low they drive support for, this with misinformation, the minute the president signs a health care reform bill, approval will go up. laura: is clinton helping obama or upstaging him? dick morris will analyze the situation. >> i don't think that it's going to be real pleasing for americans to consider health care being taken over by the feds. laura: the power of sarah palin. why she may be one of the most powerful voices in the health care reform debate. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now.

are determined in law by congress. host: does a general practitioner in montana get paid the same as one in new york city? guest: no, because part of the formula is supposed to account for the cost of maintaining a medical practice. about half of the physician fee is not based on what they take time, but what it costs to run their office or practice. rents in new york city are substantially higher than in montana. those differences are built into the formula. host: is that where the national coverage determination comes into play? guest: no, that coverage speaks specifically to what medical procedures for tests medicare will pay for. technology is changing. medical practice is changing. medicare like every other insurer must decide if and when it will pay for some new treatment or approach. historic late, in medicare most of those decisions were made initially at the local level by the carriers, the private companies who under contract to the government manage the program. each had a medical director and they in turn had advisory committees. when something you came along they would decide wheth
effort ever for health care. with three town halls just this week in new hampshire, montana, and colorado. and especially controversial provision is something called end of life counseling. the rumors and the questions have been putting lawmakers on the defensive. >> the democrats tell us all the time that it's the right of every american to have health care. yet it seems this obama plan will systematically deny those rights to certain groups like the elderly. >> we should not have a government program that determines you're going to pull the plug on grandma. >> what it says is as a 74-year-old man, if you develop cancer, we're pretty much going to write you off. >> well, you're just not right. nobody 74 is going to be written off because they have cancer. that's a vicious, malicious untrue rumor. pete: so have questions like this derailed the administration's plan to sell health care, janet? >> well, they haven't derailed it. but they've certainly taken it -- the debate in a direction that nobody had expected. and it puts the obama administration and the democrats in congress on the defe
. >> about an hour ago, the leader of the gang of six, max baucus of mon tan that -- montana said he hey gone too far by saying there was bipartisan support, and said they would have to come back and look at everything in the context of how we're going to pay for it. chris: james, thank you. one healthcare option that has drawn a lot of criticism is the concept of public government administered insurance. now a senator who knows a thing or two about healthcare says if it is good enough for the public, it ought to be good enough for congress. molly hennenberg tells us how that idea is going over. >> oklahoma republican senator and, doctor tom coburn strongly opposes a public option -- that is, a government-run health insurance plan. he says it will lead to rationing of care, so coburn has introduced an amendment saying if congress passes a public option, then all lawmakers would have to enroll, too. >> so that we feel the same effects of that plan as every other american that ends up in it. the data shows that 104 million americans will be end up in that plan. what is good for us ought to be g
? >> of course. i like my life. >> in montana and colorado, those states were presidential battlegrounds. now they are the front lines for health care reform. >> thanks so much. we have seep and heard the anger and frustration. we have heard the insults being thrown around. but through all the shouting, is the message getting through? does the president have to explain that he won't pull the plug on grandma? that is what he was saying yesterday. our panel of experts weighs in. >> and a u.s. army private under arrest this morning accused of being a krablgt killer. the 18-year-old soldier is one of three men charged with murdering a cartel member who was also a dea informant. we are live in dallas this morning. what makes this so shocking, ed, is that this fellow was allegedly working for a cartel on the mexican side of the border but the hit was on the american side of the border. >> a chilling example of the power, influence, and reach of the mexican drug cartel. there is a growing concern that the reach might be beginning to corrupt u.s. officials, authorities,or people working along the bor
on economic advisers estimated monday that athe program helped sell nearly 700,000 cars. azar aki,mon montana, you are next. stay on our republican line. caller: yes, abzurki, montana. i do not think president obama can keep his pledge not -- on not raising taxes on the middle class. i am disabled and receive social security disability, so i think i can relate to the many seniors in this country whose numbers will be growing also. the thing is, very often i don't have to pay income taxes, however i pay real estate taxes, i pay sales taxes, i pay corporate income taxes. i believe that president obama is an intelligent individual, as are the democrats in congress. and i don't know if they just don't want to eanl that corporate income taxes are passed -- to acknowledge that corporate income taxes are passed on to consumers or that ultimately individuals pay taxes. and whether or not you are in a high-income tax bracket, a middle income tax bracket, or don't pay any income taxes, ultimately all taxes are paid biby individuals. >> if you follow up, you can send us a -- "-- "that promise was made b
, texas, oklahoma, montana and west virginia. all of whom have natural resources and energy income. and i think by the way, texas is the most understudied success story in the country. if you really want to look at stunning economic capability, texas is remarkable. as i said earlier, we had sustained very low growth, and we did it selectively, because we actually doubled the budget of the national institute of health, while controlling spending. now, policies do matter, and texas is a good place to study that. texas was responsible for 70% of net new jobs in 2008. in the entire country, 70% of the net new jobs were in the state of texas. their unemployment rate is about 2 percentage points below the national average. one reason is, their legislature only meets every other year. this is very important. of the rise of professional legislators has led to the rise of powerful interest groups who basically sustain those legislators and the result is you get much too much government, much too much bus -- bureaucracy, and much too much special interest. when you elect people from the general pop
to campaign in. but in montana, in north dakota, in states like that, that money goes a long, long way. so it's a lot cheaper to buy those senators, and those senators are more than happy to make that money because it sort of frees them from the responsibility or the chore of having to raise money from actual average, regular americans. it's easier to get that $5,000 check or that pac money than it is to ask some regular american for a $20 contribution. >> so what do we do about this now? >> well, i mean, we're going to have to keep fighting the way we're fighting it. it's a propaganda war in a lot of ways. i mean, you have the insurance companies doing these -- these astroturf protests trying to sort of create this impression that this is a broad american mandate against health care reform. we see the polls. we see the numbers. it's obviously not true. americans want reform. they want it desperately. and i think we need to keep talking about it and keep pushing and keep calling and writing legislators and reminding them that they made a campaign promise to support and to reform the system, t
the government option and the government spending. then out to montana, john mccain carried this state. the president more casual out west. out here, john mccain won, but just narrowly. getting further west, as you always know, there's more skepticism about the role of government and government spending. lastly the president before taking a break, was down in colorado for a town hall. he carried this state, but his message was delivered out in the grand junction area which is conservative country out here. 17% of the residents of colorado are uninsured. as we watch the president make his case, one thing he said in colorado was don't get so f fixated on this so-called public option. i would like one in there, but people are getting hung up on that, and there are other thicks to talk about. we could say we hold these truths to be self-evident. it's clear he doesn't have the votes in the senate. is he sending a message? >> it does sound that way. the president has held pretty fast to the notion of a public option. time and time again, when you press the white house as to whether or not th
parties. the president again met with senator baucus on friday in montana. they discussed the progress being made between democrats and republicans on the finance committee. that's our focus. >> senator grassley this morning talking about broad-based support for health care legislation that so far, no one has developed that kind of support. neither in congress nor at the white house. that doesn't mean we should quit. it means we should keep working and put things together to get widespread support. >> the white house completely agrees with what senator grassley says there. that's why i said this morning that our preferred option is to go the route of getting all those involved that are at the table to agree to something that can be supported by both parties. i can't speak to what republicans will ultimately end up doing. the president doesn't have control over every person's vote on this. he can and will continue to work to try to get agreement on both sides of the aisle on this. the president believes this issue is far too important to not try. to walk away from a perfect opportunity
senator max baucus of montana. oh, and congressman bachus later admitted he made a mistake and meant to say deficit. social security could face a deficit within two years. first chance at default would be 2037 so fox got the name wrong and branch of government wrong and political party wrong and the quote and fact wrong. there's been no correction. >>> dateline washington, number two best ex-politician oopsie. tom delay now affiliated with "dancing with the stars" on with chris, never mind for a moment he turned into one of those invasion of the body snatchers, conspiracy theory birther things listen for the blooper. >> will you do me a favor. ask the president to show me his gift certificate? i mean his girth certificate? his birth certificate. >> that's how obama can reform health care. send everybody a gift certificate. genius. genius, i tell you. and dateline la marque, texas, number one best politician oopsie. senator kay bailey hutchison vowing to make education a cornerstone of her candidacy for governor which she announced at la marque high where she was coronation queen in 1
. sometimes it's hard to keep up with all of the computer lingo. >> fair enough. >> like this -- montana senator matt baucus, in whose conservativem bipartisan blue care hands the health care reform rests faced noisy protesters at a conference last week. senator baucus told "the new york times" -- there were a couple of people in the crowd with youtube -- yeah -- youtubes plural. hang on, i'm having a flashback. >> hang on, i hear there's rumors on the internets. >> one of the things i used tonight googles is to pull up maps. >> and who can forget alaska ted stevens' description of the internet? >> the internet is not something that you have done something on. it's a series of trucks. it's a series of tubes. >> when it comes to talking about the digital world, some of our politicians seemed to have their heads up their analog. let's see if i can help. first, it's not youtubes, it's just youtube. there's just the one. it's like the plural of moose, which is moose, not moos. same with internet. there are no internets. just like there are no sheeps. also, youtube is a video sharing site. no

again for this weekend for two town hall meetings, first on friday in bolton, montana, then saturday in grand junction, colorado. wolf? >> he's going to be busy at both those meetings and other stops, as well. thanks very much, dan lothian. jack cafferty has "the cafferty file." jack? >>> there is another view of this, of course. when it comes to town hall meetings, the democrats might want to rethink their strategy. arlen specter and claire mccaskill are the latest to be drowned out by protesters. one woman in missouri told mccaskill, quote, if they don't let us vent our frustrations out, they will have a revolution, unquote. protesters at arlen specter's meeting said they think the obama administration is going too far with health care reform. one woman shouted out, quote, this is about dismantling this country. specter said he thinks the people proetsdsing are, quote, not necessarily representative of america, but he thinks they should be heard. president obama and the democrats seem to face an increasingly uphill battle with selling health care reform to a skeptical public. peopl
